Rupp Arena
UK showed no signs of a letdown coming off their huge win Saturday, jumping on Miss. St. early and cruising to an easy victory Wednesday night.
UK had every reason to mail in this game. Matching the energy and effort from an overtime win in front of a raucous crowd and a national audience isn’t easy. Neither is staying focused on your opponent when they’re the worst in your conference and have the lowest RPI of any school in a...

Rupp Arena
Behind strong efforts by Alex Poythress, Julius Mays, and the Rupp Arena crowd, UK got its biggest win of the season by beating Missour 90-83 Saturday night.

After a week that saw UK lose two games by a combined 47 points; and perhaps the best player in college basketball this year to a torn ACL, the Cats rebounded by holding on to defeat the Commodores 74-70 Wednesday night at Rupp Arena.

Florida gave itself some breathing room in the SEC East race by cruising past UK for the team’s first win in their last six tries against the Wildcats.
To say this was a bad night for the Cats would be an epic understatement. Not only did UK fail to collect its first win against a team ranked in the top 40 of the RPI, they may have lost star forward Nerlens Noel to a serious knee injury that left him screaming in pain on the O’Connell Center...

In what is clearly the Cats’ biggest game of the year to this point, UK travels to #7 Florida with a chance to grab 1st place in the SEC East.
This has been a season of firsts for the University of Kentucky basketball team under John Calipari. UK has lost two home games, the first two of Calipari’s tenure, and lost to archrival Louisville for the first time since Coach Cal came to Lexington. Even the wins have drawn Calipari’s...
